Herzing Winnipeg Student Story: Cindy Grandpre

A couple of years ago I found myself single and without employment. What was I going to do? I was watching TV one day and I saw a Herzing College Winnipeg commercial. The graduates that were featured impressed me; especially the woman who said that she had started her program at 38 years old. I thought how wonderful it would be if I could go to college and receive a diploma. The thought came and went.

 Not long after seeing that commercial, my sister invited me to come live with her and her family. After having a tough couple of years she offered her home as a place of refuge for me. I gratefully accepted her offer. One day my sister asked if I wanted to go with her to run some errands. I said yes and we hopped into the truck and off we went. We turned onto Portage Avenue and lo and behold, there was Herzing College. I remember thinking how close it was to my sister’s house, within walking distance in fact. Then I remembered the Herzing commercial I had seen. Hmmmm….. Was someone trying to tell me something?
Shortly after, I researched colleges, but I was so drawn to Herzing College that I knew without a doubt that it was the place where I would fulfill my dream of going back to school. I met with Mary in admissions and she helped me decide what program to take and assisted me with applying for a student loan. A couple of months later there I was, in school, just like I’d dreamed. Everyone at Herzing College is wonderful, caring, kind, and so helpful. The instructors are amazing teachers who truly want to see you do your best and encourage you to achieve your goals.
Now I am nearing the end of my Herzing College journey. This has been one of the best times of my life. I will graduate soon and enter the job market; prepared and ready to make my mark in the world. Thanks to HerzingCollege I have gained confidence in myself and I have been equipped with skills that will enable me to shape my future. It’s never too late to make your dreams come true.
